East Marden Primary School is a sought after school in the North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide. With a capacity management plan in place, the school has a population of approximately 700 students representing a diverse range of cultural groups. Our delivery of the Australian Curriculum is through a student-centred inquiry approach, giving students the opportunity to  think, become global citizens  and find relevance to their own experiences. Inclusive teaching and learning ensures that all learners can achieve success and improvement while at school.

We believe that a child’s thirst for life-long learning begins in the early years of schooling through the fostering of an inquiring mind,  a positive attitude, confidence, resilience and a growth mindset. These beliefs are maintained  through the years at East Marden PS, culminating in students who are ready to become independent learners in secondary contexts.

We are very proud of the achievements brought about by our committed leadership team, teaching and non-teaching staff, and supportive school community. We enjoy and celebrate high student achievement from engaged and polite students who are interested in being their best selves.


OUR PURPOSE: To educate children to achieve their full potential by helping them acquire and develop the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes for success 

OUR VALUES: The East Marden Primary School community values respect, creativity, kindness and perseverance.

OUR VISION: For our students to develop the skills to enable them to be successful and responsible citizens of the 21st century.  

This website will be updated in 2019. Please check back to see improvements.
